The De La Salle Dragon Boat Team is one of the leading college clubs in the Philippines. We were formally organized in the 14th day of September year 2005 with the objective of representing the colors of green and white in the sport of traditional dragon boat.

The team of 2005 actually only came together in less than a month before the 2nd Leg of PDBF – Jam 88.3 Regatta. Faced with the possibility of not being able to represent their Alma Mater in the said event, the team forged together a crew whose determination and pride was second to none. They were to compete in a boat race of 10 male rowers, DLSU DBT crew raced with only 5 men and 5 women. Training in the monsoon conditions in Manila bay, these men and women strived to be the best. Although, they found themselves 3rd place in the controversial race, it was enough to rally the team together.

With the willpower of the first 10 members, the team was able to acquire new geared up members who came from every corner of the university. Crew members include individuals from all ages and backgrounds; faculty and students from De La Salle University and De La Salle – College of St. Benilde, students from other schools, and professionals, who share the same passion for dragon boat racing.

The De La Salle University Dragon Boat Team is a member of the Philippine Canoe Kayak Dragonboat Federation (PCKDF). We take part in many other race venues throughout the Philippines in competitive men’s, women’s, and mixed teams both in the open division and intercollegiate division.

We welcome experienced paddlers, DLSU and DLS-CSB alumni/alumna and students, and especially newbies as well. So, if you are interested and curious about the sport, do not hesitate to message in our Facebook page.
